Protect Your Home’s HVAC System With A 3 or 5 Stage Electrostatic Air Filter

An electrostatic air filter works by creating a static charge as air flows through it and trapping dust and other particles in the filter by attracting them with the electrostatic force.   Because the fibers the filter is made out of naturally create the static charge, you aren’t paying extra to charge the filters.

Electrostatic filters are reusable and can be taken out and vacuumed or washed, dried, and then re-installed in the HVAC system. All of the filters come with a lifetime warranty.  Electrostatic filters are extremely effective at cleaning dust, pollen, bacteria, fungi, molds, and other contaminants out of the air, and are up to ten times better at filtration than comparable fiberglass disposable filters.

The electrostatic filters are available with either three-stage or five-stage filtration. The three stage filter has two layers of woven monofilament polypropylene and a core of non woven polyester.  The five-stage filters have five layers of monofilament polypropylene with anti-microbial VIBAX-MI50 to help in the eradication of molds, mildews, and bacteria.

These filters are built to stand up to multiple cleanings and are on a rust-resistant aluminum frame.

The air quality in your home is important for respiratory health and the reduction of dust, but it is also just as important for the service life of your HVAC system.  With a good filter, you can keep dust, dirt, and other debris from clogging up the coil in your HVAC system, potentially extending its lifetime.

All air conditioners have a filter. Some of them are disposable filters that you need to replace, and in the hot, humid, summer months, you should do it often.

They are strong enough to being cleaned on a regular basis for the life of your unit. They also trap dust and allergens, so in addition to saving money, you will be investing in the health and well-being of your family.

If you’ve recently noticed a decline in the performance of your air conditioner, filters are the first thing to check. Our high-performing filters will pay for themselves in about a year when compared to disposable filters, and we can make them any size you need. Once you get a new filter, your air conditioner will be able to run more efficiently and effectively, saving you money and increasing your comfort level.

Schools Can Save Money with a Switch to Permanent Air Filters

All around the country, school budgets are under the microscope in order to stretch the dollar a little farther. In some instances, schools are merging, programs are being cut, and teachers are being laid off just to balance the budget. More than ever, it is important for maintenance departments to evaluate their spending so that students don’t pay the price for a shortfall in funding. Installing permanent air filters in all the schools will not only save money, but offer many other benefits.

Because schools districts are responsible for heating and cooling large buildings, the systems must be constantly evaluated and maintained. Filters must be changed on a regular basis in order to maintain efficiency. Disposable filters will eat away at the maintenance budget, and even most washable filters will only last so long.

Quality, permanent electrostatic filters will replace your current filters, and pay for themselves in the course of a year. They are washable, and have a lifetime warranty, so you will never have to purchase filters again for your current system.

In addition, our filters clean the air of dust and pollen, creating a healthier atmosphere for young minds at work. Our filters clean the air ten times better than the average disposable filter.

Permanent custom furnace filter – No more searching for hard to find filters!

Custom sized furnace filter

Furnace filters are a critical component of your HVAC system and need to be maintained regularly for proper function. They remove fine particles from the air and prevent them from entering the heating and cooling system. If a filter is not properly maintained the air flow can be restricted reducing the efficiency and potentially damaging the unit.

One of the biggest issues with maintaining a filter is that some systems require a filter that is not of standard size. A standard size filter is available at most hardware and big box retailers nationwide, but irregular size filters are often very difficult if not impossible to find.  Homeowners face either buying expensive custom disposable filters or a filter that they can cut to size which often leads to reduced functionality. The difficulty of finding and costly expense of the filters can lead homeowners to use them longer than recommended and shorten the life of their system.

An ideal solution for homeowners whose system takes an irregular size filter is a permanent custom furnace filter. These are created to the specification of your system and never have to be replaced, so no more endless searching for the right filter. The permanent filters also offer much better filtration over disposable filter. Homeowners can purchase a BoAir brand filter in any size they require and have the added benefit of being cleaned by just rinsing off with water. They will so see a great improvement in the air quality of their home with reduced allergens.

If you would like more information on obtaining a permanent furnace filter for your home and never have to search for those hard-to-find sizes, please contact us.

Washable AC Filter – Prepare for the spring and summer seasons

The winter of 2013/2014 broke many records for low temperatures as well as high temperatures depending on the region of the country you live in. As spring and summer come the temps are sure to rise and that means your air conditioner will once again be called upon to keep your home comfortable. Homeowners should perform maintenance on it before they turn it on to ensure it functions properly and to prevent damage.

During the time your air conditioner is not working there is much that can happen. The outside unit should be inspected to ensure it is free of debris. It is also beneficial that any indoor components are cleaned to remove any dirt, dust and debris buildup. The air filter needs to be inspected to ensure proper air flow which can affect the performance and even result in damage if too clogged.

Homeowners have alternatives to the standard disposable ac filters that become costly throughout the lifetime of the unit. A washable ac filter is an ideal investment that is sure to save money as it will never have to be replaced. Electrostatic filters produced from such manufacturers as BoAir attract particles which are firmly held to the filter. They offer low air resistance as well as much improved filtering over standard filters removing up to 25 times more than standard filters. Homeowners get the benefit of an easy clean filter that just needs to be washed off, dried and then replaced with no purchase of a new filter needed.

A Permanent AC Filter That Actually Helps With Allergy Triggers

BoAir Filter

If you have allergies then you’re probably already aware of the problems with tree pollen and other allergens that can affect the quality of air in your home. Even if you’re not sure which trigger is bothering you specifically, you may have noticed yourself feeling the effects of allergies without realizing what it is.

Depending on which state you are from, the common allergy triggers can range from certain flowers and shrubs to trees and grain plants such as wheat and alfalfa. Along with environmental conditions such as smoke or other irritants, you need an AC filter that not only helps relieve some of these allergens but one that is dependable and convenient.

The great thing about a permanent ac filter is the fact that you can clean it at any time and never have to worry about replacing it. When the allergens are especially prevalent, you may find yourself replacing a traditional AC filter more often and that can lead to more trips to the store along with additional costs. When choosing a permanent AC filter, you don’t have to worry about either.

For instance, the BoAir 5-Stage filters are embedded with VIBAX MI-50. This may not be a familiar term to you but what it does is work as an anti-microbial agent which helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which are also irritating allergens that can do harm to your health. With these filters you simply wash them when needed and you’re back in business – no more visits to the store to replace what you need and no more trying to locate the size you need.

If you want to take control of your allergies, the first step is a good AC filter and a permanent one is the solution you need. To order or have any questions answered simply contact us.
